Foucault News

News and resources on French thinker Michel Foucault (1926-1984)

Links to general online resources on Foucault

This page lists a few general online resources in relation to Foucault’s work, mostly in English. Please let me know in the comments box below of any important links in any language that are missing from this list and I will add them here.

There are still a number of older sites on Foucault’s work online that I have linked to in previous iterations of my site but as these haven’t been updated in recent years I haven’t included them here. If you would like to have a look at these links – and other extinct links – for historical reasons, you can find my old links pages on the wayback machine. (You may need to avert your eyes from the retro amateur 1990s design!)
